Magnum Force 5800 grinder

The Magnum Force 5800 from CBI is a mid-sized upswing unit designed for contractors dealing with lower production needs or transportation restrictions. According to CBI, decreasing headaches from load restrictions and permitting was one of the primary design goals of the 5800. The unit’s offset helix rotor, anvil and screen designs and dimensions remain similar to the 6800 in order to retain its high levels of grinding performance. However, the 5800’s rotor width is decreased to produce a machine with a total width under 8 feet 6 inches (2.55 m), weighing 64,850 pounds.

The Magnum Force 5800 grinder is ideal for yard waste and demolition wood processors, as well as mulch yards that demand high-volume throughput and maximum reliability. The 5800 features a high lift upper roll for ease of maintenance; high torque, hydrostatic feed system; PT Tech hydraulic PTO; and a Caterpillar engine. High strength drum rotor and screen system are shear pin protected. Plus, the entire system is controlled by CBI’s IntelliGrind logic incorporating a variable infeed speed that automatically adjusts to engine load and an optional modem communications system that provides for real-time system diagnostics.

Magnum Force 6800B grinder

According to Continental Biomass Industries (CBI) the Magnum Force 6800B is the first grinder ever made that can grind whole trees as fast as a 30" chipper can chip -- with a fraction of the prep and maintenance. Ideal for contaminated stumps and forest debris, the Magnum Force 6800B track unit is built for recyclers, land clearing companies and yard waste processors who demand the highest throughput and maximum reliability.

Features include a unique clamshell hog box design, state-of-the-art metal detection and release system, 765 – 1,050-hp diesel or electric power, PT Tech hydraulic clutch, and CBI's Replace-A-Face hammers. The 6800 B weighs between 82,000 and 89,000 pounds, making it legally transportable on a standard lowboy, and a four-inch thick, high strength rotor core is shear pin protected.

Magnum Force 8800

The Magnum Force 8800 horizontal grinder features over 1,200 hp, and is designed to process large amounts of full-length logs, brush, stumps, telephone poles, railroad ties, and more. A unique clamshell hogbox opens in seconds with the push of a button – giving full access to the rotor and quick-change screens, and extra-thick shear pins protect the screens and anvil. A large-capacity feed hopper easily handles full-length trees or large material surges with no problem, and the upper-feed roller system and chain-feed conveyor are powered by two heavy-duty planetary and high-torque motors.

Metal detection for grinders

Designed for CBI grinders, the CBI Metal Detection & Release System includes carefully-placed impact measuring sensors that detect if a rotor tooth strikes tramp metal. The sensor quickly communicates with the machine’s main control system, telling it that metal has been detected. The controller then immediately reverses the feed system, throttles down the engine, and depending on the impact, hydraulically opens the anvil/grate frame assembly at an extremely high rate of speed. This is done without requiring an actual impact against the anvil or grate, allowing a safe ejection of the tramp metal, and minimizing potential damage. The sensitivity of this system is easily adjustable by the operator.

CBI introduces the Magnum Force 8800 Horizontal Grinder

CBI has unveiled its biggest, most powerful, portable grinder ever produced. On portability, according to CBI president Anders Ragnarsson, “It’s not as simple as just throwing wheels on a horizontal hog. For two decades, CBI has engineered equipment that is designed as much for the road (or off road, depending on the model) as it is for aggressively processing material. In this case, the tracks on the 8800 get this grinder to sites that can be difficult in terms of terrain so that it can perform a critical function.” The Magnum Force 8800 features over 1,200 hp, and is designed to process large amounts of full-length logs, brush, stumps, telephone poles, railroad ties, etc. A unique clamshell hogbox opens in seconds with the push of a button – giving full access to the rotor and quick-change screens, and extra-thick shear pins protect the screens and anvil. A large-capacity feed hopper easily handles full-length trees or large material surges with no problem, and the upper-feed roller system and chain-feed conveyor are powered by two heavy-duty planetary and high-torque motors. The 8800’s wide discharge conveyor facilitates high-volume throughput and folds for transport, and a proactive metal-detection and release system provide maximum protection for working parts. Impact measuring sensors on these units detect if a rotor tooth strikes tramp metal, and then communicate with the machine’s main control system which reverses the feed, throttles down the engine, and depending on the impact, hydraulically opens the anvil/grate frame assembly at an extremely high rate of speed, allowing the ejection of the tramp metal. Some other key features include: a forged steel rotor that features teeth that can be adjusted for efficient primary and secondary grinding; CBI’s Replace-A-Face system which allows for easy and inexpensive hammer repair; IntelliGrind technology which yields feed speeds that vary automatically based on engine load; and an optional modem communications system which provides for real-time system diagnostics, analysis and operating program adjustments.
